Watch: ‘SNL’s’ Vanessa Bayer Makes the ‘Fifty Shades’ Elevator Scene Awkward

Creating a lusty moment in an elevator is not quite as easy as “Fifty Shades of Grey” would imply. So learns “Saturday Night Live” cast member Vanessa Bayer in a new short video by Audi of America.

Bayer lampoons the infamous elevator rendezvous between Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) by attempting to woo anyone who boards the elevator with her. In the 90-second clip, Bayer uses everything from handcuffs to riding crops to entice her victims into a lurid encounter, to no avail. In her desperation, Bayer’s determined heroine assumes that the car key held by one of her elevator targets is actually a gift for her, whining that Christian gave Anastasia an Audi in the novel: “But Anastasia got one!”

Focus Features will release “Fifty Shades of Grey,” based on the best-selling E.L. James novel, on Feb. 13.
